Why are Thursdays always so dead?

I read a Men's Fitness magazine at the gym today, not realizing that what I really wanted was the Wired flowchart for "Are You An Evil Twin?" Sadly, there's no online entry for me to link you to, but I did find one for The Lohan Prophecies Predict The Pop-Apocalypse. Great graphics. ;)

I spoke to my Dad earlier this week (over the top of Glee), who announced that they've finished putting skylights in the living room so it won't be so dark (it's like a cave in there). I asked again whether they couldn't just have opened the blinds (like normal people), and he said, "No, I don't like those people over the back fence. This is much safer for us." WHY must my Dad always look for weird, convoluted solutions to simple problems? o_O

Some coworkers were randomly talking about apple trees last night, which reminded me that I was almost a month behind in looking for Gravensteins from Bel Air. HSH got some for me, and I need to stockpile more before they're gone. SOOOOO good.

Almost a year ago, I went in search of whether I could find HTML code for special symbols to put on some of my (now massive) fic pages. You know-- pumpkins and stuff like that. Sadly, I did not, though I ran across this selection: ☻ ♠ ♣ There are a few others, but I can't find the private post where I saved them.

I still want a pumpkin one...
